More Than 300 Billion Won Invested In CB

Manchester United have poured a huge amount of money into the central defender, but the effect is minimal.

Manchester United met West Ham United in the 18th round of the 2023/24 season of the English Premier League PL at Old Trafford in Manchester, England on the 23rd and lost 0-2.

Both teams struggled for the first goal. Manchester United faced a one-on-one situation with the goalkeeper in the 34th minute when Alejandro Garnacho received Antony’s pass, but failed to take advantage of the opportunity due to poor shooting power. 토토사이트

West Ham attacked with Mohamed Kudus and Jared Bowen at the forefront, but the detail was slightly reduced. The first half ended 0-0.

West Ham led in the second half. Bowen attempted to shoot after receiving Lucas Paqueta’s pass in the 27th minute of the second half. goalkeeper Andre Onana saved, but the second ball hit Bowen and entered the goal.

West Ham scored an additional goal. Kobe Maino missed the ball in the 33rd minute of the second half while trying to catch it in Manchester United’s camp. Kudus did not miss this opportunity. The shot from inside the penalty box shook Manchester United’s net as it was. West Ham’s 2-0 victory ended the game.

What stood out on the day was the starting lineup. Key players were listed in other positions, but Johnny Evans and Willy Kambwala played in the central defender. Neither player is a starting member.

Evans’ contract with Leicester City expired after the end of last season. He joined his former club United during the pre-season, where he played training and friendly matches. Eventually, a player who could not find a new central defender signed Evans.

Even after joining the team, few expected Evans to start the game. It was because it was a recruitment just in case. Since the beginning of the season, Manchester United defenders have been injured, and Evans has to start.

Kambwala is a 19-year-old defender who currently plays for the Manchester United reserve team. He is certainly a promising player, but there are still many areas to be refined. He made his “surprise” debut in this game as the central defense of Manchester United collapsed.

There was an unavoidable reason why the two players started. Manchester United has now lost all of its existing central defender resources due to injuries.

Lisandro Martinez 57.37 million euros, about 82.3 billion won, Raphael Varane 40 million euros, about 57.3 billion won, Harry Maguire 87 million euros, about 124.8 billion won, and Victor Lindelof about 35 million euros, about 50.2 billion won all missed the game.

United have spent over W300 billion on central defenders in recent years. However, injuries have kept them from using up properly.
